Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger In The Alps (Distro Title)
This product is currently sold out.
Phoebe Bridgers' career has been propelled by fellow musicians. Ryan Adams, Conor Oberst, and Julien Baker have all sung the praises of the 23-year-old Los Angeles indie folk singer-songwriter, leading up to her 2017 full-length debut Stranger in the Alps.
AllMusic calls Stranger in the Alps "a candid, wry, death-obsessed and altogether transfixing collection of ruminative indie-folk confections that invoke names such as Elliott Smith, Jenny Lewis, Laura Marling, Julien Baker, and Lisa Germano.
"Bridgers is an old soul, but one with a flair for capturing the myopic melodrama of youth. Her keen eye for detail and dulcet voice make for a lethal pairing, delivering lines like 'I hope you kiss my rotten head and pull the plug/know that I've burned every playlist and given all my love' with alarming sweetness. Front-loaded with a trio of deceptively powerful singles ('Smoke Signals,' 'Motion Sickness,' and 'Funeral'), the 10-track set loses some focus near the end, but Bridgers remains such a compelling presence throughout, that even her less immediate material bears weight."Please note: This is a distributed title (which means another label pressed this release), so we do not have any extra jackets for this release in case of minor damage by the USPS in transit. To clarify, It will come packaged in a full-color jacket (as pictured) sealed with plastic wrap UNLESS requested in the comment section of your order to "open the album & place outside of the jacket prior to shipping." This is a good way to prevent potential seam splits along the top of the jacket due to careless handling by the post office, and this service is free of charge. If you forget to write in the comments of your order about shipping outside of the jacket, PLEASE EMAIL US WITH YOUR ORDER NUMBER and ask us to update the notes on your order to ship outside of the jacket. Release days are hectic, especially the first few hours, so please give ample time for a response. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you!
